Indian: Dine With the Taj

  • Jan 12, 2014 · 1:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I recently dined here with my friend Rochelle who was staying with me a couple days. She suggested Indian and it's 15 minutes from my house.

Far and away my favorite Indian restaurant in Nashville or on the outskirts. Rochelle said it was the best Chicken Makhni she's ever had (now I see what all the fuss was about) and she's traveled the world more than most of us will ever hope to in a lifetime. I kept double-dipping my chili naan in her sauce wishing I had gotten that. Next time! 

Better yet, let's do the BUFFET! If you've never had Indian, the buffet is the best way to try different things to see what you like or don't like. I have yet to find anything I don't like...

This may become a regular meetup - it's just that good.

Website: http://www.tajnashville.com/

Directions: The restaurant is located in the OLD Kroger shopping center on Nolensville Road between Elysian Fields and Paragon Mills Road (same shopping center as Dollar Tree).

Below is copied from Mary's 12/29 Meetup (incl her picture, at left):

Nashville's Indian cuisine scene got a much-needed boost when Taj opened on Nolensville Road early this year, offering a mix of Southern + Northern dishes.

Choose between the buffet and the extensive menu, or mix the both. Chicken, seafood, beef, goat, lamb all make appearances. The restaurant's owners also own a grocery in the area, which adds to the variety they can put in front of eaters.

I've been there once and was very impressed. The dish in the pic is a Khasta Kachoti, a puff pastry that was stuffed with .... I forget what, but it was wonderful.

    The restaurant told me as we were leaving that we are now their "regular" customers. I am checking out a newer place in Cool Springs with a friend for lunch. She is Indian and LOVES the place. Maybe a dinner meetup their sometime next month since this month is jammed with other stuff.

    Reservations made! The woman on the phone said, "I think I know you!" She remembered me from our Christmas visit and said she would set up the long table for us. I told her 1pm so feel free to arrive earlier than the 1:15 (I think that was an accident on my part). I'll be there about 10 til. If you can't make it, please update your RSVP early since there are several people waiting to attend.

    The buffet will be available or you can order off the menu. I plan to do both if they don't have butter chicken on the buffet - (lunch the next day).

    Its weird it bounced me, and then said a spot was available. I noticed I was no longer there, so grabbed the spot.

      Diane, No matter what happens, you have a spot. Some weird things have seemed to be going on with Meetup recently. People have been made organizers who aren't. There's a Meetup glitch somewhere. Still trying to figure this out.

      Officially my favorite Indian restaurant even though I have only eaten there once and I'm thrilled that it's only 15 minutes from my house.
